We have a saying in Australia that someone is a few sheep short in the top paddock - meaning a bit slow. What other sayings do you know of?

Australian sayings - Australian sayings
This is a good one Bel and there are various sayings that all mean basically the same thing. "He/she is an intellectual pygmy". "One short of a six-pack" . "A few spaces in the toolbox", slow. "She'll be apples", meaning that everything will be alright. "Bloody galah" - idiot, annoying and often a stupid person "Banana Bender" - someone from Queensland "You little beauty" - very excited cry of approval "That's bonzer" meaning that is great, wonderful. "Things are crook in Tullarook" means things are not going well. "Mad as a cut snake" means the person is upset, angry and/or unpredictable. "He's a dingbat" means the person is a fool. "Just like a drover's dog" means useless or no good. "Fair go mate" means give me a chance. "Don't have a zac to my name" means flat broke, no money at all. How's that for a few extras for you Bel. :)
